It’s mid-April which means the NHL playoffs are here! It’s awfully subjective, but the NHL playoffs just may have claim to the best playoffs in sports. But that is a conversation for another time. The excitement begins tonight with a 2-game slate featuring the Islanders vs Hurricanes and Maple Leafs vs Bruins. This will be yet another fantastic NHL postseason and it all starts with these great Eastern Conference matchups.

Let’s get into my 2-leg NHL parlay for today’s playoff action, and you can also find out our experts’ NHL predictions for tonight’s big matchups.

Hurricanes -1.5 (+124)

Maple Leafs and Over 5.5 (+270)

NHL parlay odds: +728

Hurricanes -1.5 (+124)

The Islanders are a great story and have played great hockey lately. But the Hurricanes have played like it is their time to make a deep run. Carolina has been scorching hot for months, improved at the trade deadline, and have only pressed harder on the gas pedal.

The Hurricanes won 7 out of their last 9 games with a loss to the Blue Jackets for the sake of staying healthy. In Carolina’s current stretch, their wins have been by an average of 2.86 goals. Lately, when the Hurricanes win, they win big. The Hurricanes have been winning a lot and will look to keep the trends rolling.

Toronto Maple Leafs Over 5.5 (+270)

Neither the Maple Leafs or Bruins are exactly on a roll entering the playoffs. That could bode well for Toronto. A bright side to Toronto’s recent losses is they have continued to score. It has been their goal prevention letting them down. This could turn into an offensive-heavy game and in that case, the Leafs have the advantage.

As mentioned, Toronto continues to produce. They scored the 2nd most goals per game in the NHL and have held true recently. Toronto has scored an average of 4 goals per game in their last 5 games. They have also allowed 22 goals in their last 4 games. The door looks to be open for offense on both sides.
